Facts and Fiction of Piano Tuning

Misconception #1

The majority of the people think that if you play your piano hard, you will knock it out of tune.Conversely, many owners of pianos believe that if you do not play your piano, it does not need to be tuned.

Fact #1

All the pianos should be granted on a military career – bases periodic if they are played hard or hardly of the whole. Why? The real goal of the regular agreement is not simply to return your noise of better piano. By having a tuner of tested piano – service of technician your instrument systematically, it can determine if your piano needs additional preventive maintenance to safeguard the viability and the integrity of the instrument. Alternatively, the owner of piano gains the full advantages of the property. The examples of such advantages are the piano holding its value for the resale and its profitability. A piano that resounds good and work makes it possible to the player to make the music. The listeners are also to appreciate the music.

How much time should you grant your piano? You should grant your piano at least once per annum, preferably twice with four times per year for a new instrument (the first year).

An inexpensive and bottom-of-the-range piano even can still cost three to five thousand dollars to be replaced. The average piano can have up to 20 tons or more tension on top. This tension is supported by the resounding structure of tension – the cast iron of metal plate, the rim and radiated under the structure of structure (in large) and the beams postpone (in the amounts).

There are many factors which can compromise the structure of your piano.

Structural repairs can be very difficult, inconvenient and expensive to correct. Only one experienced technician of tuner of piano can directly determine and to include/understand the nuances of what is matched above with your piano and with the only way in which it can make with such a determination is while granting and by inspecting your instrument systematically.

Misconcenption #2

The modern agreement of the equal temperament was established by Johann Sebastian Bach (towards the end of 1700 ‘ S) when he wrote the well wasted Keyboard and was employed in the technique standardized by tuners of piano to date.

Fact #2

I am constantly astounded how almost all the professional musicians, professors and wide people always think this myth to be made. The modern agreement of piano is called Equal Temperament. The equal temperament recently scientifically was employed and practised by the modern technicians to grant the modern pianos.

Generally, the evolution and the practice of the agreement harshly corresponded to the evolution of the piano. Bach did not have anything to make with the practice of the modern agreement of the equal temperament. He and other type-setters, musicians and theorists can be referred with the idea to grant pianos in the equal temperament, but in reality, they were not. The confusion of the practices as regards agreement of musicians approximately of modern piano of past is mainly due to the nomenclature, descriptions and the real use as of these agreement of the periods earlier.

Misconception #3

To grant a piano you need a good ear. If you have a bad ear, your piano does not need to be granted.

Fact #3

Some have a greater aptitude or conscience of launching. If you are musical or are a musician, it can help you while a beginner learn the piano granting until a very limited degree. The tuner of qualified piano which is also better musical can appreciate how the piano resounds before or after it grants it. But to be a good, qualified tuner of piano it takes the special training and the practice to grant the temperament, hear beats and to learn the effective technique from hammer. Just because you have good ear does not mean that you can grant a piano. Reciprocally, just because you have the bad ear does not mean that you cannot hear or appreciate your piano being in or out of the air.
